I didn't say you had to do anything about git's popularity. I'm just
wondering why you're putting up with a tool that you don't enjoy
yourself. It's not very hackerly-ethical to put up with tools you
consider bad but you use them just because they're popular. Why not
work on improving the tool you enjoy using?
